Ready to take your demon-slaying skills to the next level? Introducing the Solo Self Found mode in Sanctuary! This thrilling new mode challenges you to conquer the hordes of Hell with only your own skills and instincts. It's a true test of courage and determination, with no team to rely on.

Solo Self Found, an officially supported single player mode, to Diablo III. Without the experience bonus from being in a Party, or other players to protect your back as you carve through demonic legions, this mode will test you. To celebrate the accomplishments of those brave enough to roll a character in this mode, we have also created specific Leaderboards for Solo Self Found, which function like those for other modes.

Embark on a solitary adventure with Solo Self Found in Diablo III. Choose the Solo Hero option during character creation and immerse yourself in the Campaign and Adventure Mode. Forget about teaming up - this mode is all about the individual journey. Challenge Rifts can be conquered with friends during the seasonal mode.

Season 29 Visions of Enmity

Visions of emnity

Prepare yourself for a world gone awry! The Burning Hells have infiltrated every nook and cranny of Sanctuary, twisting and warping reality as we know it. But fear not, for these twisted realms have opened up opportunities to explore Visions of Enmity. Venture into pocket dimensions through Diabolical Fissures and witness the havoc unfold firsthand!

Demons beware! Nephalem of Level 1 and beyond have a shot at stumbling upon a Diabolical Fissure while battling evil in the open world. But that's just the beginning. If you manage to trigger a Fissure, brace yourself for a Vision of Enmity, a mysterious realm full of unimaginable horrors and incredible treasures. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, these Visions are unpredictable and can spawn even more Fissures after you've dealt with your foes. Keep your eyes peeled for these chances to score amazing gear. It's time to unleash your inner demon hunter and claim your destiny!

New Monster Affixes

Season 29 diabolical fissure

Attention, Nephalem! Brace yourselves for new devilish powers in the Visions. The Burning Hells have granted monsters deadly Affixes to make your encounters more treacherous. Check out these game-changers, exclusive to Visions of Enmity.
• Enervating: Get ready for a speed slam! Monsters will create an area that slows your movement by a whopping 65% and puts your Cooldown Reduction on hold by 50% if you're too close.
• Necrotic: Healing just got harder. Your natural rejuvenation is reduced by 65%. On top of that, monsters inflict damage-over-time that sucks away a hefty 180% of your max health over a grueling 30 seconds. But fear not! If you manage to heal beyond 95%, the tormenting effect will vanish.

Introducing the Paragon Ceiling: Power Up Your Solo Self Found Adventure!

Are you ready to take your solo Self Found character to the next level? We've got a game-changing update for you! Starting with Season 29, we're introducing Paragon Points that work hand in hand with Solo Self Found and our exciting new theme.

Before, you were limited to assigning a measly 50 Paragon Points to each attribute in the Core, Defense, Offense, and Utility categories. But now, get ready to unleash your full potential with a whopping 200 Paragon Points in each attribute! That's a total of 800 Paragon Points for your solo Self Found character!

But wait, there's more! This exclusive change is not just limited to Season 29. It applies to all modes, so you can experience the thrill of maximum power across all aspects of the game.

Get ready to break through the Paragon Ceiling and conquer the game like never before. Power awaits, are you up for the challenge?

Season 29 Paragon Ceiling

Paragon used to reign supreme in terms of character power, but this Season brings a shift in focus. The developers have decided to move away from relying solely on Main Stat grinding and instead emphasize gameplay knowledge and gear hunting. To kick things off, they have set the initial starting point at 800.

Firstly, Movement Speed has been adjusted to 0.125% per point. Why? Because the old value would have given players a whopping 100% Movement Speed, which was just too much. Now, players have the freedom to invest points into this stat and go beyond the 25% Movement Speed limit from item bonuses.

And don't worry, Area Damage is still going to perform just as well, if not better, with some substantial performance improvements. So get ready to dive into a new era of character power and master the art of the hunt!

Community-Led Changes

When it comes to Diablo III, the community's voice is like gold. That's why the developers have been all ears, listening to your feedback and making the game even better. Now, in Patch 2.7.6 PTR, your most requested quality-of-life improvements are coming to life! Get ready to enjoy these game-changing updates. You asked, and we delivered!
Orek’s Dream
Orek's Dream gets a makeover! Say goodbye to the Dark Berserker and Toxic Lurker and say hello to the new and improved Hellions, Vile Swarm, and Savage Beast. It's a monster set shake-up you don't want to miss!

Requiem Cereplate has been recalibrated to give you just the right amount. No more overflowing with excess power.
